Time and time again children’s lives are being cut short due to the horrific war. Millions of children have been forced from their homes inside Ukraine and across borders with limited access to life’s basic necessities. With each passing day, they are missing out on vital education and are increasingly at risk of depression, anxiety, and other serious mental health conditions. The portion of children living in poverty has almost doubled to more than 80 per cent with more children sinking deeper into poverty every day as the war rages on.
“Children have been killed. Children have been wounded. And children are being profoundly traumatized by the violence all around them. We must protect all children in Ukraine. Now. They need peace.” – Catherine M. Russell, UNICEF Executive Director - Veronica.
UNICEF continues to be on the ground in Ukraine meeting children’s most urgent needs for health care, safe water, and nutrition, while also safeguarding children's rights to education and long-term well-being.
